Minister: Israel 'Closer than Ever' to Full-Scale Gaza Invasion

Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East Wars - Psalm 83

Much of the Middle-East Arab world is not exactly enamored with Hamas and it's leadership in Gaza. That's probably why the neighboring Arab states of Israel haven't jumped on board with help for Hamas and haven't entered the fray against Israel, (yet).  However all it would take is for some radical group to take control of Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, (ISIS for instance), and Israel would be at war on all fronts.

ISIS as already said that this is their goal, and the Sunnis in Saudi Arabia are expressing an understanding of this global call to kill the Jews.  Of course Shiite Iran has made no bones about their desire to wipe Israel off the map.  In Islam, when it comes to Israel, the enemy of my enemy is my friend, (we will kill each other later over our Mahdi interpretations).

See how your enemies growl, how your foes rear their heads.  With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish.  “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.” Psalm 83:2-4 NIV

Minister: Israel 'Closer than Ever' to Full-Scale Gaza Invasion
Communications Minister and Security Cabinet Member Gilad Erdan (Likud) has appealed for Israelis to be patient and to allow the IDF time to complete Operation Protective Edge, adding that the army was closer than ever to launching a full ground invasion of Gaza. Speaking in an interview with Army Radio on Thursday morning, Erdan revealed that Israel did not yield to Hamas's demands during recent negotiations in Cairo. "Hamas did not receive a single one of its demands and so it appears they have resumed firing," he stated. Echoing sentiments shared by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu late last week, Erdan said that Israel was not prepared to concede its position of strength by suddenly capitulating to Hamas demands.

Gaza terrorists continue to pound southern Israel with rockets, drawing IDF response
Terror groups in Gaza have fired more than 30 rockets since midnight, and the air force struck more than 50 targets. Iron Dome intercepted several projectiles over southern cities and towns, including Ashdod and Kiryat Gat.  Approximately 100 rockets have been fired in total since Hamas broke the cease-fire at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Gaza medical officials reported that 16 people have been killed in Gaza since the renewal of hostilities. Hours after rockets shattered the cease-fire and hit Gaza frontier communities, three loud explosions were heard over Tel Aviv, shortly before 11 p.m., for the first time in over a week. In total, the IDF said 50 rockets were fired at Israel since 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday until around midnight. The Iron Dome rocket defense system intercepted six rockets. 

Saudi Paper 'Understands' Global Call to Kill Jews
An op-ed last Tuesday in a prominent Saudi Arabian newspaper justified statements from international anti-Israel rallies calling for Jews to be killed as an "understandable reaction" to the "barbaric war" Israel is conducting in Gaza. The piece in the Saudi Gazette, written by UK-based Pakistani journalist Ali Ashraf Khan, was translated and revealed by the Middle East Media ResearchInstitute (MEMRI). According to Khan, the statement "all Jews should be gassed," a call for a continuation of the Nazi genocidal machine which was heard at recent pro-Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) rallies in the Netherlands, was "understandable."

Islamic State Fighter: Hezbollah and the Jews Are Next
“From Syria, we’ll expand the caliphate, Allah willing, and Hizbullah and the Jews will meet their fate, and soon,” vowed an American-born 26-year-old Islamic State (IS) fighter in Aleppo, Syria to a disguised Israeli reporter, Israel’s Globes reported Monday. Posing as “Abed al-Islam Afifi,” 26, from Paris, the reporter contacted Abu Turab via a cellphone app. “Of course, it’s great to be here [in Syria],” Abu Turab said. “Jihad in our generation is a personal duty. While I can’t directly recommend it to you, Allah, praised be His name, told all Muslims to follow in his path.”
